Born and raised in Scottsdale, AZ, pop vocalist Lynne Timmes kick-started her music career when she moved to New York in the early 2000s. She sang at various clubs around town, venues like the Bitter End, the Elbow Room, and Arlene's Grocery, but didn't get the music industry's attention until she attended a BMI songwriting workshop and met producer Steve Skinner. He and Timmes collaborated on some songs, some of which later appeared on her first full-length album, This Is Not About You. Timmes' music was eventually featured on WB's Jack & Jill and CBS' As the World Turns, and her song "So Serious" was included on a 2005 Ruff Ryders compilation disc, The Redemption, Vol. 4. ~ Margaret Reges, Rovi
